"The Comforts of Home" is a book that enters into the spirit of how we want to live now, at a time when excess is no longer desirable. Author Caroline Clifton-Mogg puts a welcoming and beautiful haven within everyone's reach. The first section, The Elements, extols the joys of an orderly haven, covering both decorative aspects such as textiles and finishing touches, and practical topics such as storage and cleaning. The second section, The Rooms, shows how to create a home that's cosy and easy to live in - from the wecloming hallway, to the cozy kitchen, comfortable living room, satisfying study, practical bathroom and peaceful bedroom - through to the garden. "The Comforts of Home" offers clever decorating ideas that rely on imagination and style rather than a deep purse and suggests ways of making the most of what we have to put the heart back into our homes.

If you love homes that reflect the owner's personality and sense of style and beauty that don't look like they've been "done" by a designer, reflecting the designer's style, you'll enjoy this book. This book shows rooms that have the owner's point of view. If you want a house you love, you need to have what you love in your home and this book is full of eclectic rooms that embody that philosophy.
I enjoyed the color, light and sprightliness of the rooms in this book. They illustrated that you can use what you own already and make the room attractive. It's great for readers who enjoy comfortable, pretty, authentic, livable design that is within reach of everyone.
